Bonus Round 7: Recs

Bonus Round 7: Recs

You've created so much during this event, so here's a round to celebrate each other's achievements!

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on August 24 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

  • Recommend at least three fanworks from main or bonus rounds. Your recommendations don’t have to be connected in any way, and you do not need permission to recommend a work.
  • Don't rec your own work. You can recommend things created by your own team, but please spread the love to other teams too.
  • Each recommendation must include at least two sentences explaining why that fanwork is awesome. Please use the format specified below.
  • You may recommend as many works as you like, as long as they are posted separately in groups of at least three.
  • There will be no prompts for this round. Simply post each fill/recommendation list as a comment in response to this post.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Format your comment in the following way:

If FILLING (all teams):
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to
  • Copy and paste the following form into a comment and fill it out. Delete things in brackets, and leave the HTML alone.

Posts not using this format will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, regardless of what they contain. They, like all comments in this community, are subject to the code of conduct.

These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate. Make as many fills as you want!

For fills:

First 3 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 4-10: 10 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21+: 2 points each

All scored content must be created new for this round.

If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only.

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

Theme: Chihayafuru Chihaya/Shinobu Fics, Volume 1

Title: Chihaya & Shinobu Excitement

Why is this work awesome?: I love this fic best for Miranda's characterization of Shinobu. Her voice is sedate and removed but still with this expectation, this awareness of Chihaya that speaks of both great respect and great fondness. There are a lot of really great details — Chihaya's perfume that is supposed to be roses when she smells of strawberries, the excitement under Shinobu's skin fizzing like soda pop, the itch she feels that's in her chest and spreads into her lungs — and they work together to create this very specific, summery mood and I love how that all comes together.

Title: Shinobu's Invitation to Chihaya

Why is this work awesome?: The Queen match is such an important thing to Chihaya, and I love the way this fic frames Shinobu as acknowledging Chihaya's worth when it comes to facing her in a fight for the title of Queen. I love seeing all of Chihaya's friends wanting to support her, and I love that the gift from Shinobu is chocolate, because it's just the thing to get Chihaya focused on the win.

Title: Chihaya and Shinobu The First Time

Major Tags: religious imagery
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this fic for its really creative setup and its unique take on using an outsider perspective. It's Chihaya and Shinobu both coming to a shrine to pay respects, while Emperor Tenji and Takamatsu-no-miya sit in the seat of the Gods weighing the people who come to offer prayers. I love the language Psiten uses with these characters out of history, and I love the tone of the piece that comes about as a result, very stately and deliberate, like a royal procession.
